Gogglebox viewers are used to reacting strongly to UK TV Week, but tonight (Friday) was a new level.
The popular sofa stars were thrilled when it came to an episode of the classic Baywatch from the 80s.
Reminiscent of the red swimsuits, sun-bleached sand and stars like David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, there were still problems with some of the actors on this week’s goggle box.
David and Shirley in Caerphilly first drew attention to the slightly stilted performance Pamela Anderson gave as CJ on the show.
“Why is she alarmed about someone going into the water? It’s a beach,” David asked as the couple watched CJ watch swimmers through her lifeguard binoculars.
When she asks her co-star Dave Charvet for help, Amira and Amani thought it was funny.
“She needs support? What for?” They laugh – turn to scream as his character Matt Brody runs to CJ’s aid and rips off his white t-shirt as he runs.
When the program revealed many at-risk swimmers, there were laughter at the gogglebox stars and Welshman David exclaimed, “All of a sudden, it’s a major disaster!”
The TV superfans weren’t the only ones stunned by the 1980s hit.
Carolien Nicholas added, “This Baywatch segment and its reactions have been hilarious. I can’t believe I’ve seen these tripe religiously every Saturday night! #Gogglebox “”
- Gogglebox is on Channel 4 on Fridays at 9 p.m.
